Glossybox // November

Unlike many bloggers who a regular subscriber to Glossybox - this is my first. Having attended the Motel Rocks bloggers evening a few weeks back, I was asked if I'd like to receive the November box. I obviously jumped at the chance as I'd read countless reviews of the service and wanted to see for myself whether it lived up to expectation. 

I've noticed upon reading fellow blogger's posts about the November box that the boxes vary which I understand could have something to do with the fact that upon subscribing you select your beauty requirements (and as I hadn't formally subscribed, this stage was skipped). 

To my knowledge, none of the products I received were of full size and I don't know whether this is the norm or not, but nonetheless, here's what I got in my November Glossybox

ARBONNE FC5 Ultra Hydrating Hand Crème [I'm not a massive fan of hand crème as I never really notice a difference, but who knows, maybe this one will work!) 
DEAD SEA SPA MAGIK Dead Sea Bath Salts [Again, I've never really seen the benefit of bath salts but I'm hoping to be proved wrong!]
ILLAMASQUA Freak Eau De Parfum [I always love testing new perfume and with Christmas and the sales looming, now's the perfect time to find a new scent!]
MONU Revitalising Moisturiser [I go through moisturiser like no-ones business so I welcome any addition to this! Hopefully my sensitive skin will be okay with it]
NAIL ROCK Designer Nail Wraps [I've never used nail wraps so with it being the party season, it's the perfect excuse to give it a go!]

Having never had a Glossybox before, it's hard for me to comment on the quality compared to previous months but as initial thoughts, am I impressed? Not entirely, however I can't pass judgement until I've actually tested the products. I don't think £10 is bad value for money, having received five products but would I subscribe? Perhaps, but I'm not sold. I'm very much a person where once I find a product I like, I stick with it and struggle to try other products outside of that safety circle and that's probably why these sorts of services don't really appeal to me. Don't get me wrong, the door-to-door service is a nice touch, the packaging is delightful and if you use and like all of the products inside then you're on to a winner, it's just I'm very particular about what products I use (mainly down to how sensitive my skin is!). 

I'll review the products in a few weeks when I've given them a proper road test but until then, What do you think of the November Glossybox
